If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

NaNo prompt 3

**I'm sorry to those looking for my blogfest entry: I didn't have time to make it out. Please forgive my poor planning.** 

How many days has it been? It feels like forever since it started and I look forward and there's still a while to go. LOL Open Mic on Friday was fantastic- we had a really good turnout with some singers, short stories (I read one of mine) and poetry (I read some of my poetry too). My best friend came with and she even read one of her pieces. So I really enjoyed this event. It's inspiring. The next one is November 19th, and I'm going to have to write new stuff for it...Hmmm

Times screamed at my fairy muse:(This week 0)
Nervous breakdowns: 0
Number of pens thrown across the room:1
Days word count has been slacked:2
How many short stories completed: 3 and a half so far.

Number of times my hand has swollen: 1 
(My right hand swells when I write or play on the computer alot- acute tendinitis is what I have in my tendons. I'm technically "not supposed" to type at all let alone write...but its part of who I am, I can't be a writer without writing :)

Today's silly question:
So what's the speed of dark?


Ellie said...

Congratulations on your productive writing week!

So what's the speed of dark? The answer depends on a number of complicated and impossibly difficult to explain computations that depend on variables such as darkness intensity, time of year, and geographical location. For example, in the UK the speed of darkness is reached by the following mathematical equation:

Darkness intensity over month divided by country. Or, 5 over 11 / UK. The answer is . . .emm . . .crap. What did I do with that planetary calculator?

Yippe, to open mic! Such a brave fairy you are.:)

The speed of dark? Depends on how far you let it fall. It builds up speed with depth.

Hooray! It sounds like it was a great time for the short story, poetry reading! That's awesome!

The speed of dark? I think it would be slow...like jello (is jello slow?).

Theresa Milstein said...

Busy Busy Busy!

Summer Ross said...

Ellie~ great answer...lol

Yup always busy- open mic was a fantastic time and I plan to do it again. thanks everyone for your comments!

B.E.T. said...

....I'm definitely using a couple of these. So far I'm chugging along, but later on in the story it's going to be a nightmare to even get stuff out! Like...next chapter! Thanks a ton!

And I'm glad the mic night worked out well. ^_^ I think I'd bee too nervous to attend one of those. Not necessarily about reading my work aloud, that's easy (though I've been told I read fast) it's the standing in front of a ton of strangers that's hard.

Try typing with two pencils! Works for a while.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Bummer, I was looking for your blogfest list! That's all right. You can snark at my list if you like.

Will Burke said...

Cleverly Inked said...
